CONTROVERSIAL comedian Russell Brand was mobbed by fans when he attended Katherine Jenkins' performance at the Last Night of the Audley End Proms on Sunday.
The star, who is famous for his outrageous comedy routines and Hollywood films, needed a police escort to help him leave the arena.
Arriving at the concert in Audley End House and Gardens, Saffron Walden, just before the opera star was due on stage, Russell Brand was deluged with requests for pictures and autographs from the crowd.
The comedian had to approach local police officers at the event to ask them for assistance in leaving the venue.

The comedian did not stay at venue for long and is believed to have become annoyed by people repeatedly asking him for pictures.

Russell Brand shot to fame after presenting Big Brother's Big Mouth and later went on to record his own show on Radio Two and star in films such as St Trinian's, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Bedtime Stories. He released a best-selling autobiography called My Booky Wook.
Brand's reputation was damaged when he made a prank phone call to Faulty Towers actor Anthony Sachs during an interview with Jonathan Ross. The comedian quit his show because of the scandal.
